Snuggly Pink Christmas Sweater Stamping

Hello my dears! I'm sorry I haven't had a nail post to share with you in a while -- I have been frantically Christmas shopping, running around, working... you know how the season can be! Today I have a stamping manicure that I have been wearing for the past two days or so. I started out thinking, "Oh, stamping! That will be quick and easy and fun!" but soon remembered that I am not good at stamping. Combine a lack of stamping skill with perfectionism and you are in for a long evening of re-dos!

I wanted to use this stamp and couldn't get a red-pink combo out of my head. I think Let Them Have Polish's Merry Pinkmas series is on my brain!

The base of this manicure is Seche Pretty Little Heartbreaker and I stamped the sweater pattern and matryoshka using Nailz Craze plate NC03 and American Apparel Downtown LA. Downtown LA is normally a red creme but it has a somewhat translucent consistency. When I stamped it, it turned a little pink-ish!

I also added some dots around the matryoshka to fill the empty space, but instantly regretted it. They look clunky next to the delicacy of the stamping. Oh well - can't win them all!

I have some great ideas for additional Christmas manicures that I am going to do my best to execute soon! Hope you are having a great and stress free holiday season so far!
